Default Well I Picked a Grill

A local shop had a J&J Vertical bar stainless steel grill. I had it installed today. This is going to take some time before it looks natural to me.

If you want to top it off, the full chrome bumper looks really good (IMHO) with that kind of grill...although a bit on the expensive side.

I think you are right. That will have to be down the road. Actually I think that aftermarket wheels, maybe lake pipes and full chrome bumpers are the only other mods I want to make on it. That will take time (read $$$)

Think it LOOKS GREAT on your car! [^] After a couple hours you'll think your car looks perfect--very natural-looking. [|)]

Really brightens up the front. It has an "in your face look". Nice job.

Kevin,
Looks good! [8D]
I thought I reminded you that that shop also had the Faux lake pipes that go with the grille. [:I]

You could get these chrome strips

Kevin,

That is a really cool and relatively unique grille. I think you need electrical tape on the blue OEM bottom grille because I can see the grille fins through the grille.

From my experience I found that BLACK DUCT TAPE works as well or better than electrical tape.
